Playfulness and curiosity: Creating a safe place for English Language Learners with Essel Linton

This week, I had the honor of chatting with Essel Linton: one of the contributing authors for The Music Teacher’s Guide to Engaging English Language Learners, a dear friend of mine, and an incredible music teacher at Annandale Terrace Elementary School. Essel herself was an English Language Learner and shares her insights for building sentence frames, getting creative with signage and language in the classroom (Hello Burgers and Fries (listen and you’ll know what I mean!)), and sparking the imagination.

It was truly a joy to chat with Essel and I just know you will love this episode!
